Well, it has certainly been a baptism of fire for Rangers in the first back in the Premiership. An all in all up and down season, the Gers wrap up looking up at both Celtic and Aberdeen with St Johnstone, fourth, having the chance to finish just three points behind us should they inflict a campaign ending defeat on the Light Blues.

It wasn't ever going to be an easy return to the topflight for Rangers, I'm certainly not sure I'd go as far to say we should be 'embarrassed' to finish behind Aberdeen - as Dons boss Derek McInnes had said - but much more will be expected next season and Pedro Caixinha's got to make the right movement in the transfer window.

A victory to end the season, for what it's worth, is something the travelling fans will want having witnessed a first Aberdeen victory over Rangers at Ibrox in 26 years in the midweek ahead of this game - the Saints have had a fine season and shouldn't feel they can get anything less than three points.

What will happen in this one though? Cast your vote so we know if you think it'll be all smiles or disappointment for the Light Blues come the full time whistle.
